EU WaterNet DEMO Project Fall 09

European Demonstration Project Final Report

During the fall Dave Matthews met with partners Janez Polajnar and Gregor Gregoric at the EARS and Mitja Brilly, FGG to plan the final report and follow-on efforts.  Dave and Janez investigated a 100-yr flood event on the Sava near Kranjska Gora where over 200 mm of rain fell in late August.  Several large debris flows were located on the north and south slopes of the Sava valley.  Gregor discussed the DMCSEE drought monitoring project and need for soil moisture observations and high resolution modeling.  Dave took several trips to photograph water resources hydropower and control structure facilities and rivers from the Mura in the east to the Sava and Soca Rivers in the Julien Alps of the west.  Hyperlinks to photos are provided for the highlighted text.


Janez also took us on a sailing adventure across the Gulf of Trieste, where we experienced a moderate Bora on our return with 1.5 to 2 m waves and 20-30 kt winds from the NE.
